So the saying goes … April showers bring May flowers. Let’s celebrate Spring and renewal with a flower-themed lace project this month.
We’ll be switching away from the teensy yarn and needles of last month to thicker yarn and larger needles to make a practical, small piece of springtime-inspired “art” that you can use as a facecloth (as pictured here in a boudoir gift basket), tabletop coaster/doily, or stylish kitchen dishcloth.
40 – 50 yards sport weight or DK weight cotton yarn
Size US 3 (3.25 mm) and US 6 (4 mm) double point needles, sets of 4
(Optional) Crochet hook size F
(Optional) Rustproof blocking pins and styrofoam board
To make a larger circular dish cloth, you can substitute worsted weight cotton yarn (e.g. Peaches & Crème is a popular choice) and a size or two larger needles. Allow that you will also need some more yarn. You will probably be able to get 2 cloths out of 1 – 50g ball of yarn.
Be sure to watch this KnitHeartStrings site to see when the free pattern for May’s Pinwheel Flower Doily becomes available in a few days.
Meantime, search your stash or local yarn places for a pretty color. Let us know what pretty color(s) you plan to use!
